Family-owned and operated for more than 112 years, Columbia has earned acclaim for its old-world charm and award-winning Spanish/Cuban cuisine.

Casual attire is fine, but we don’t allow sleeveless shirts on men.

Join us for century-old family recipes like Paella "a la Valenciana," Filet Mignon "Columbia," and fresh seafood specialties.

Don’t miss Columbia’s Original “1905” Salad®, prepared tableside with our delicious, freshly-made dressing, a 100-year-old family recipe of fresh garlic, oregano, wine vinegar and Spanish extra virgin olive oil.

Be sure to sample a fine Spanish wine like Montecillo or Campillo. Relax in our courtyard or Mediterranean-style dining rooms, filled with hundreds of hand-painted tiles and Spanish-style fountains.

We are a sister to the Columbia in Tampa's Ybor City, founded in 1905. Children's menu available. Open 365-days a year, including all holidays.

We enjoyed our meals so much. Second time there. We live in Boca Raton and spent the week in St Augustine for my birthday. Had to eat dinner there. Reservations are recommended because it gets very busy. Best food!!!!

We had the perfect dining experience. Our waitress was exceptional. We decided to have the paella which required 25 minutes preparation. In the meantime we had a lobster flatbread that was wonderful with a couple of glasses of sangria. The paella was worth every minute of the wait. It was loaded with seafood and served at the table. We had a churro dessert with chocolate, carmel and fruit dipping sauces. The whole experience could not have been better.

I have been to the Columbia in Celebration, FL and was trying this location for the first time. Every bit as enjoyable. The service was first rate and the food was spectacular.
